Storyline

Lamont and Rollo hit upon the information that an independent film company is looking for inexperienced black actors to be featured in an experimental new film. After some cajoling, Fred is encouraged to try out as well. However, when the three meet the director and the producer, they get a look at the script and discover that it is a pornographic movie. Before they can leave, the place is raided by the police and they land in jail. In the lock-up, Lamont calls Aunt Esther to get them out. Yet, after they are cleared of the charges, Esther won't allow them to be freed, she wants to read to the heathens some scriptures from the Bible first. Written by Jerry Roberts
